The pipe organ at Walt Disney Concert Hall, with its unusual and visually memorable façade of wildly splayed pipes, was created in collaboration by architect Frank Gehry, tonal designer Manuel Rosales, and organ builder Caspar Glatter-Götz, and inaugurated in September 2004. Latry's performances were part of the instrument's first successful season, but the concerto performances, part of the American Guild of Organists National Convention in Los Angeles that summer, organized by the Los Angeles AGO Chapter, provided an official-unofficial 'private prelude' for this remarkable instrument. This 'encore' program was broadcast originally in April 2010 as #1016.
